The Server Hardware Specialist focuses on complex activities and solving complex problems to ensure servers are functional and applications are available. This course will cover, in-depth, the planning, installing, configuring, and maintaining servers, including knowledge of server-level hardware implementations, data storage subsystems, data recovery, and I/O subsystems. Students will learn the interrelationships of all parts of the server system and understand the ramifications of their actions. The level of sophistication for Server+ will examine elements above basic hardware fundamentals on a PC, and thus this certification should be seen to be above that of the A+ certification. A few examples of these advanced technologies might be RAID, SCSI, multiprocessors, hot swapping, etc. While these technologies may be found in non-server environments, they are clearly more common in the server environment. The primary target population is mid- level and upper level technicians who are responsible for hardware functionality of microcomputers on a more sophisticated level than that of entry level, including installation, support and troubleshooting, as well as second level support. PREREQUISITE SKILLS: Eighteen to twenty- four months of strong hands-on experience with advanced PC hardware. A+ certification prior to Server+ is recommended, but not required. At least one other IT certification such as CompTIA A+, Compaq ACT, Novell CNA, Microsoft MCP, HP STAR, SCO, or Banyan . Objectives: Installation Configuration Upgrading Proactive Maintenance Environment Troubleshooting and Problem determination Disaster Recovery
